National Cybersecurity Awareness Month made easy
National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is here! As cybersecurity educators, we jump at opportunities like NCSAM to shine the spotlight on cybersecurity best practices and we’re here to help you do the same. Whether you’re a security awareness rockstar who sings cybersecurity best practices year-round or if October is your one chance to take center stage, we want to help you make the most of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
That’s why we built an NCSAM Toolkit including themed posters, infographics and articles to make this October the best National Cybersecurity Awareness Month yet. Our resources are relatable, conversation and (dare I say) fun! Use our NCSAM Toolkit to make cybersecurity an open topic of discussion at your organization and position your team as partners in the fight against the bad guys.
Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.
The 2019 National Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme emphasizes personal accountability and the importance of taking proactive steps to stay cybersecure at work and at home.
We’ve made it easy for you to drive this year’s theme home with resources covering each of the 10 messages from this year’s NCSAM campaign:
- Never click and tell: staying safe on social media
- Update privacy settings
- Keep tabs on your apps: best practices for device applications
- Shake up your passphrase protocol: create strong, unique passphrases
- Double your login protection: turn on multi-factor authentication
- Shop safe online
- Play hard to get with strangers: how to spot and avoid phish
- If you connect, you must protect: updating to the latest security software, web browser and operating systems
- Stay protected while connected: Wi-Fi safety
- If you collect it, protect it: keeping customer/consumer data and information safe
Capture employee attention with themed posters
Our toolkit includes one poster for every NCSAM topic to grab your employees’ attention and promote personal accountability. Hang posters in common spaces or high-traffic areas and replace them regularly to sustain employee interest all month.
Dig into the details with infographics
Supplement our themed posters with infographics built to provide additional detail on each cybersecurity topic. Print infographics, add them to your intranet or share with employees via email.
Reinforce your message with easy-to-understand articles
Layer your messaging on each NCSAM topic with brief, conversational articles. Each article contains actionable cybersecurity tips and can be shared in your organization’s newsletter, security portal or intranet.
Lead the way with a pre-built PowerPoint presentation
Use our PowerPoint presentation to deliver an in-person cybersecurity training session built around the NCSAM theme and topics.
Use our free NCSAM Toolkit out of the box to cover every topic this October or hand-pick topics and customize the content to meet your needs. If you can’t cover every topic in one month, don’t worry. You can use our NCSAM Toolkit all year or explore our security awareness resource center for free tools to keep your entire organization cybersecure.
